Uniq, a correction. They DID have a car, when the bank employee and lightning's cousin were taking the bank deposits and the gang ambushes them, the two were driving in the car. But the timeframe still confuses me. If they just took that car out, everything would be fine... I think. This is so weird. Were there still wild west towns in the 30's? And did sherriffs just have interoggations of a single witness and closes it by saying "I'm convinced!" and charge people with murder without doing any more investigating? And did sheriffs invite the accused family members and indescrepit mexican strangers to the meetings as well?

REALLY strange.

I was puzzled by this for the first couple minutes, when the bank tellers all had very 1930s pencil-thin moustaches. Then I saw the car, and thought, "Oh, it's a modern-day western."

By the way, what did that idiot think he was doing when he jumped out of the car and right into the line of fire of the bandits? YOU HAVE A WHOLE CAR THERE TO HIDE BEHIND!

he always tried to be accurate historically...

Perhaps the story is set in 1935 as a modern day western. I enjoyed it , but Mc Coy made far better films. I liked several of the films. where he is the Star and John Wayne is the supporting actor..

I think you may be right. 'Ghost Patrol', another McCoy film, has areoplanes (!) as being central to the theme.
